Family Recreate Glastonbury In Their Own Back Garden After 2020 Event Cancelled

Family Recreate Glastonbury In Their Own Back Garden After 2020 Event Cancelled

A family who were disappointed not to be attending the Glastonbury Festival this weekend have recreated the experience from the comfort of their own home.

They've even booked a musical act in their friend Dan Greenaway, who played a live set for the family today.

The Rees family, from Worcestershire, are massive fans of the yearly music festival, but were so frustrated at not being able to attend this year's edition that they decided to bring the festival to their own back garden.

Fiona Rees, her husband Matt, and 11-year-old son Dylan, have built a miniature Pyramid Stage, a bar, a camping area, and a toilet tent to have their own realistic festival experience this weekend.

Hey, they're even predicting thunderstorms, so it might just be exactly like the real thing.

They enlisted help from Fiona's dad Colin for the project, and you'd have to admit, it looks pretty good.

It's not quite Worthy Farm, but it's a pretty decent runner-up prize.

Mrs Rees explained: "Glastonbury is just magical. I have been to a lot of different festivals over the years and it just has a completely different feel about it.

"Everybody goes and they are just there to chill out and have a good time, and it has those vibes.

"It's the only place I would go on my own because you'd come back and you'd have made friends while you were there because someone would always scoop you up and look after you."

Britain's Largest Family Share Their Amazing Two-Day Garden Transformation

published at7 months ago

This weekend, Colin and Fiona's sister and niece will be joining them, but they'll be camping in the back garden inside a tent for that true Glasto experience.

Their smaller Pyramid Stage has been fitted with a projector that will show the classic sets that will be shown on the BBC in lieu of the real thing taking place.

To be fair, there's a hell of a line up.

Fiona added: "We will be having a few drinks and watching the streaming of previous years. Being sat out there at night with the fire going, and watching it, it comes pretty close on the basis that we can't go there."

After they shared the pictures of their home-Glasto set-up, the family has been inundated with requests to join them for the weekend. But, as with the real thing, if your name isn't down, you're not getting in.

Fiona explained: "The number of people who have asked me if they can join us. I had someone last night practically begging me for a ticket.

"I've printed off some tickets and I've laminated them. If you haven't got a ticket you aren't coming in!"

Here's hoping that the weather doesn't spoil the party for a second time.
